It doesnt even have the stock rom or kernel. And yes technology keeps moving every minute as I already mentioned in my previous post. The OS of BB is just a marketing tool. Why is there a term "benchmark test" for phones and computers if hw is irrelevant?

Edit: if your phone had 500mb of ram I doubt you would have smoothness or even be able to have more than a few apps running in the background. Ram isnt a marketing tool. The more ram the more processes can be running without having to drop other apps or services because there isnt enough memory. If you had or know anything about computers hw does matter.

Here is what u said
The only time HW specs are used its when the manufacture has nothing new to offer in user experience and keeps bumping up HW specs for marketing purposes.*

Sounds like BB to me. Every new phone for android has new user experience and is a open market development. BB has kept the same shit over how many years but has changed how ugly the phone looks. You could get a fat phone or skinny phone. Next phone oh my they changed the ball scrolling to a little laptop scroller. BB has been shit for years and wont even come close to being in the middle spot of their competitors. They make small improvements in phone development like the gameboy did for handheld consoles

I bought my Z10 to bridge it with my PlayBook,besides,I had a $100 credit with Telus here in Canada.
I know fck all when it comes to these latest smart/super phones,lol.It was about time that I upgraded since many of my riding buddies in the Philippines rock the I-5 and SIII.
Last real phone I had was the Tytn II,and before that,the N95.Now that's old.
The upcoming S4 looks awesome though.

Who cares what the president uses. One word: lobbyist. Maybe I should wear the same underware as the president.

blackberry is a dying brand! and thats for a reason. blackberry was big because they were one of the first smartphones with a very good secure OS, which is why a lot of business' used them. Android and Apple are the two to go with. Windows is trying to keep up but i dont think theyre there yet. by the way i use to manage a verizon store so im not just pulling stuff out of my ass lol

Old? QNX is also old, it first released in 1999-2000. Takes time for an OS to mature. It's the old monolithic vs. microkernel debate. Whole other jar of worms. Better performance vs. more secure.

Anyway, it's still disappointing that BB still has no LTE.

BlackBerry has LTE. Don't know where your getting your info. I am running on the LTE bell network as I am writing this... BlackBerry Z10 runs on the qualcomm snapdragon LTE processor for the north american market. The one in UK uses a texas instruments omap 4 with only 3G capability.

haha!! I use an android and I'm waiting for the Z10 and maybe, just maybe I'll make the switch. They're ramping up production to meet demand... i guess there's a bunch of "closet" blackberry fanboys and fangirls...
